What an amazing ridge... Walking down till the end looking around in the western ghats and you realize how dangerous it could have been be to build this fort.... Then you see the huge walls and try to think what it was to sand here during war. There are railing to ensure you are safe.. as there is a fall next to end of wall.. In monsoon it will be green and you might see waterfalls coming. The end of this ridge comes a wall which is two layered defense. The bottom have place to keep cannons and throw what ever was used that time for war. and when. You look down. It's another 100 foot vertical fall. That shows how much secure it was. Standing at edge gives you Ariel view of all directions
Nice place to visit, just make sure u have nice grips on your shoes. Can take kids over there, they should be knowing about our great history.
